DVD ripper

#1

I haved used DVD ripper for years and I covert the primary movie to MP4 in a 1850 kbps rate. This produces a high quality MP4 that I can use on my IPOD, iPhone or stream wirelessly to my 55 inch TV. I have been using the single pass operation and everything has been fine. Hundreds of my DVDs backed up.

The last 6 movies I have converted using 8.0.8.5 have the pictures “Greeked” with hundreds of small square lenses all over the screen. This happens regardless of whether I play the MP4 on the TV, Computer or iPhone.

Is there a problem with 8.0.8.5 DVD ripper? I have never had this issue before.

I reinstalled the new version, restarted my computer and tried several tests. They all failed with the new version. I downloaded it again and it still failed.

I used 8.0.7.9 and it works perfectly. I think we have a problem with the MP4 converter in the newest version. I am using the IPOD ripper as always.

Please go into common settings-> “A/V Codec” and make sure all settings are set to “Software”, also post the internal log file so we can see if we can locate the problem :

The default location is:

For Win7 C:\Users\User Name\My Documents\DVDFab\Log
or Vista C:\Users\User Name\Documents\DVDFab\Log
or for XP C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\My Documents\DVDFab\Log

Thanks for your response. All settings are set to software. I now have converted 8 movies and they are all bad. I used the old version of the software and they are all good. I have made countless MP4 movies so I know the process and I have changed nothing. I appreciate your help.

Here are the two files in my log folder:
